I think that if you would be serious about this, you would have enough knowledge and experience to choose your own "ship"

Re: Preparing to Beat Jesse martins World Record

Personally, I won't be impressed until a toddler pulls it off.

Summer jobs, 100K from sponsors.... Hmmm..... I think if you got a job at Bain Capitol, maybe you wouldn't need sponsors.

I'm simply not impressed with circumnavigation, knowing a teenager can do it.

I wanna know who the oldest person to do it is, that's the record I'm gearing myself up for.

Re: Preparing to Beat Jesse martins World Record

If you really want to impress the hell out of us do it at age 16 in a 24' Gladiator with a sextant and no life raft or sat comm, then set sail with 200 ballpoint pens and 50 bucks as your budget. AKA Robin Lee Graham

Saito is one of my all-time sailing heroes, but he's not the oldest... (although I believe he is the oldest to do a RTW non-stop)

Heckel Completes Second Circumnavigation at Age 89

June 10 - Jacksonville, FL

That's right, for on June 4, 89-year-old Harry Heckel, frequently written up in Latitude 38, docked his Dreadnought 32 at Jacksonville, Florida, marking the end of his second circumnavigation.

"The event marked more than just the end of 16 years of solo sailing," said Heckel, "it marked time for me to get off the bridge and become a passenger. At age 89, it's best to let someone else do the heavy lifting aboard Idle Queen.

"The 10-year period of my second trip around the world has been a time of significant learning for me," continued Heckel. "It became apparent that people who travel to new places in small boats are, as a group, the finest in the world. They are interested in people, places, and events, cognizant of the need to be on the lookout for trouble, and always ready to assist a fellow traveler. My belief that on a one-to-one basis, people from whatever country can be friendly and helpful, particularly to the elderly, was amply confirmed. My traveling now will be limited to U.S. waters and with a companion. Regards to all my friends."

Well done, Harry!

Nah, if he really wanted to impress the hell out of me, he'd do it in a boat he built himself, a la John Guzzwell...

Quote:

John Guzzwell first rose to fame within the sailing community when he sailed single-handed around the world in Trekka, his home-built 20-foot yawl. He never considered world records or looked for sponsors. He was in his early 20s when he began this project and was not yet 30 by the time he completed his circumnavigation. Trekka Round the World, his classic tale of this adventure, inspired many of today's sailors.

This wonderful tale by a talented, yet unassuming, young man is quite possibly the best book written about circumnavigating in the 1950s.
This guy is probably my favorite minimalist sailor, and TREKKA ROUND THE WORLD is a terrific read - highly recommended...

He was also sailing with Miles and Beryl Smeeton when TZU HANG was pitchpoled in the Southern Ocean on their approach to Cape Horn, and played a huge role in their amazing tale of self-rescue...
